Please join us on Thursday, August 24th for a two-stage meeting to discuss the potential adaptive reuse of the former James River Christian Academy at 14353 Benns Church Blvd., Smithfield.

Isle of Wight County received a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Planning Grant to help fund a market analysis/feasibility study in cooperative partnership with the land owner to determine the best possible reuses of the 24.8-acre property, as well as structures formerly used by JRCA.

The Economic Development Department is hosting an open house followed by a public meeting to introduce the community to this project and to create momentum for stakeholder participation in the planning process. See attached flyer for details.

Contact Chris Morello, Assistant Director of Economic Development, at 757-356-1969 or for more information.
